LA police officers were fired for playing Pokémon GO during active robbery

An appeals court has upheld the firing of two Los Angeles police officers who ignored a call requesting backup to the site of a robbery nearby so they could pursue a Pokémon GO virtual game character. What do you think?

“I also would not go into a dangerous situation without a little Pokémon backup.”

Kalyani Vershbow, recipe consultant

“It is unscrupulous that these officers ignored the duty of anything less than a Charizard.”

Russ Parades, Blooper Reel Editor

“I think we all need to get used to Snorlaxes running wild through our neighborhoods.”
